“We follow the ways of Jesus, practicing compassionate justice so that all may feel God in action.”


We welcome all to the table
Everyone is welcome into the life and leadership of our congregation. All are welcome regardless of skin color, ethnic origin, age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, economic condition, or any particular element that makes us human. We honor your presence.
We are seekers
We support each person’s unique, lifelong search for meaning. We have more questions than answers and trust that God is present as we wrestle with them. We express and experience the Holy in a variety of ways.
We are disciples of Jesus 
Jesus models for us a life of extravagant love for all, and solidarity with the poor, the hungry, and the outcast. We have courage to do justice.
We are responsible stewards 
Mindful of God’s bountiful creation, we use our resources with both thrift and generosity, always trying to balance our internal and external priorities.
We cherish our beloved community 
We experience the Holy in our leadership, women, men, youth, and children. Together we comfort, celebrate, and challenge one another.


Jesus demonstrates both God’s unconditional love for us and all people and God’s absolute requirements of us, to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with God. As an active, progressive and inclusive community in Christ,
We Do Justice
Working to transform our society to help the poor, the oppressed and “the least of these” in our world;
We Love Kindness
Honor each other’s differences and diversity in an environment of grace and acceptance. Providing nurture and empowerment to each of our members in our internal ministry, and doing acts of mercy in our external ministry; and
We Walk Humbly
By expecting the Holy Spirit to speak new things to us, to other people, and to each generation, offering traditional and alternative Christian perspectives in education and worship, and encouraging continual dialogue and spiritual growth.


“To love our neighbor as ourselves” (Matthew 22:39)
All people are, created in God’s image, and each child of God is unique and wonderful. We celebrate the universal truth proclaimed in Galatians 3:26 and 28, “in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith. There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male or female, for all of you are one in Christ Jesus.”
As members of Presbyterian Church of the Apostles, we strive to love one another as God loves us. Knowing that we are all one in Christ, we welcome and embrace all who share with us a common faith in God into the life and leadership of our congregation. We do so regardless of a person’s race, ethnic origin, age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, physical or mental ability, economic condition, cultural or religious background, or any particular element of his or her total humanity.
We realize that these conclusions may not be universally held, and we acknowledge that we “know only in part” (I Corinthians 13:1), we respect those whose prayerful and considered understanding of scripture and tradition has led them to other conclusions, and we welcome their presence, gifts and companionship in the journey of faith. 
We welcome and encourage all persons to share in community life, worship and sacraments, including offices and ministry of the church. In response to the call “to love our neighbor as ourselves” (Matthew 22:39), we also pledge ourselves both individually, and as a congregation, to oppose by word and action injustices toward other persons, as we would oppose injustices toward ourselves.
(With this declaration, Presbyterian Church of the Apostles announces its commitment as a More Light Congregation on the 11th day of January, 1998.)


Membership at the Presbyterian Church of the Apostles is a commitment to following the ways of Jesus by participating in a community that cares for one another, works for peace, strives for justice, and seeks to create wholeness for humanity. It is not a proclamation of a particular creed or dogma, but a willingness to join our community on a journey of faith. Discovery classes are held 2-3 times a year.  Please contact the church office for more information.

The Session is the governing body of The Presbyterian Church of the Apostles. It is comprised of the pastor and elected elders. The Session is charged with providing for the physical, educational, spiritual, and financial life of Apostles Church. Each elder is responsible for specific areas in the life of Apostles. The Session meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of each month and are generally open to the congregation. Contact the pastor with any questions. There are also many committees that support the church and the Session. Such committees include Worship, Personnel, Christian Education, Growth, Administration, and Compassionate Justice.
